    Yeah, my joints are aching and my muscles are tying themselves in knots in need. Every time I stretch I nearly faint in ecstacy.

    I hope the Yoga will help my sore body. I have not felt my abs as much as I am when doing the abs ripper x. - but hopefully the result will please me
    Yoga was one of the hardest workouts on the program, in my opinion! Of course, I had never done yoga before and am not very flexible. Plus, it's a long routine. I'll be interested to hear how it goes for you.

    And don't worry about yoga being "too much". If you can handle the Plyometrics routine and survive, I doubt yoga will throw you in a dark abyss or anything. Plus, you can always stop the tape if you tire out.

    When do I start functioning like a normal human being again?

    I mean, I have work. If I'm feeling shitty all through work, that's like... bad, and stuff.

    Sure exercise is addictive. My husband has to remind me to cut the crap sometimes.

    I dance around like a crazy nut; I do my Wii; I spin on my bike; I do workout videos, and he's like OKAYYYY that's ENOUGH NOW.

    Holding 1 minute break atm, I fell forward doing all the Warrior things. >_< god, it is really hard and difficult. It is embarrassing that i'm not that flexible as I thought.

    I'd answer this if I could. It sounds like you should avoid Yoga in the future though.

    Haha!

    Yeah, yoga really works all aspects of your core flexibility. I was duly humbled as well.

    So I should not exercise at all because it all interferes too much with my normal have-to-do routine? That's NOT what the gym teachers say to me!

    Really the only thing I can stand to ever do is stretching. It's the only pain I can stand because it feels good. Everything else is even worse.

    Haphazard, don't give up - please stretch. It's actually REALLY good for you, and gives you that nice, trim, lean look. If I work out too much with weights, I get bulky muscle mass because I'm an endo-mesomorph. So actually stretching can be really good and lead to better flexibility, better posture, which leads to better everything.

    ^I agree..

    I can so feel the difference if I forgot to stretch after a workout. Especially Back/abs or any shoulder exercises.

    I've always been flexible. People are usually impressed and then disgusted that I can bite my toenails. But ever since I started yoga I'm too stiff and dizzy to :/
